Motorized blinds can be operated in many ways for example radio remote control, integration with home automation systems, timers or based on the weather outside such as the direction of the sun.

Options include:

  • Motorized blinds can be electric, battery or solar-charged. Hybrid blinds can also be operated by hand
  • Quiet opening and closing of the blinds
  • Automatic operation such as lowering blinds when room temperature is too high
  • Integration with Building Management Systems, brands and protocols including Luxone, Lutron, AMX, LONWORKS, RS485, KNX, SMI/Intelligent etc
